“Arriba Mi Gente” by Nancy Guevara depicts a hoard of people with clenched fists and flags raised, over an image of the U.S.-Mexico border and
a heart emblazoned with the Mexican flag logo. The slogan, in Spanish, plastered prominently over the artwork translates “Rise up, my people,”
with the idea of uprising clearly suggested.
Paid for by city tax dollars no less.
Just exactly what are they trying to encourage here?
Class warfare anyone?
What would be the response if a mural of a KKK rally were put up on any billboard, much less a city-funded one? What kind of message are taxpayers
fronting the bill for, and who does it benefit?
Is this world going crazy or is it just me?
Hispanic-American ATS Members....How do you feel about this?

As an American with Hispanic blood running through my veins, I am beyond disgusted and pissed at how my ethnic group has
behaved. I am a proud American from Texas, live 3 miles from the border where all the violence is taking place. Stupid, ignorant Mexican-Americans
are looting our social services. I personally loathe any Democratic liberal who is of Hispanic descent. All this crap about "Ariba mi gente" and
"Si se puede" is just stupid. Sure, I am proud that my grandfather and grandmother LEGALLY entered our country from Mexico. I am also proud that I
still have family in Mexico. However, I do not support illegal aliens in any form or fashion. Period. There is a reason we have immigration laws. As a
matter of fact, I propose that we adopt and enforce the same immigration laws that Mexico has in place.
I felt very uncomfortable watching this. I mean, half the audience is of Hispanic roots, you can just feel the uneasiness in the crowd. What exactly
are they trying to achieve here? They have taken much political backlash yet keep pushing this character, which is unusual. What do you guys

Yes, brought to you by the New World Order, the CIA and HLS....lol
The one line that got me, in the context of the back and forth here, was the last coment about "We will see you ectect...we the people".
Its as if they are trying to make the line "we the people" something that certain "types" use. Which then exstends to its use in "we the people
in order to form a more perfect government".
Meanwhile the "other side" gets to operate under the banner that this is "everybodies country" and we are only here because we hear if you work
hard you can be and do anything.
Remember or in case you were asleep a few years back we had Mexican Nationals working in this country, non citizens for the most part, marched by the
100s of thousands in big cities all over the US. The effort we well organized and coordinated. Most likely organized and coordinated outside this
country with the help of a 5th column in this country. But it may not be who you think but certainly the usual suspects were in on it.
The fact that so much of the money made here is sent to other nations by the nationals that work here makes the US look like a host to economic
parasite nations sending in thier foreign work forces in to mine the gold. Its just a matter of time before the effect of money not cycling back
through the system catches up. You may go down to the local bank to get a loan and find Ricardo, the son of the guy that used to mow your lawn, now
runs the bank. Or who knows maybe Chow Ding, the son of the guy that ran that nice little take out place is now a representative for the local bank of
China, who by the way found a way to get Don Trumps face on their brochure.
That is an interesting interpretation, but a more historical one is that she is using the classic Marxist Communist fist of defiance, and OWS uses
this as well. Very leftist radical. And the class warfare too. Seems she is trying to break down the wall so that her people can have easier
Also the rising up my people slogan sure sounds like Revolution to me. Clearly Marxist type.
